Bead Hop and Swap Final Piece

Okay so I admit it, I am a last minuter!  I got the idea, but execution was totally lacking.  There is nothing worse than having the idea and not being able to execute it.

I love the show piece! The picture doe NOT do it justice, the colors just don’t come thru.

However, I gave it my all.  This is what I started from, from my awesome partner Linda Anderson at (love her and her site)….


and the BEAUTIFUL show piece from


Linda was a great parnter.  I was very intimidate by an administrator as a partner, but she was a Rock Star partner, patient and even going over and beyond when I was going into labor, I couldn’t have asked for a better partner!!! Plus she sent me great stuff! I was overwhelmed and wanted to put most of it in one piece, but that would be overkill, especially with the range of things she sent me.  I can develop my skills and try some new things I have never done.

I have never worked with polymer clay.  I was really impressed with the piece!  The color is very irradesent, I really love it!

So this is what I came up with….


I loved trying something new and this bead hop was great!

Excited to see everyones pieces

    Beautiful necklace! It’s always hard to capture the beautiful colors of iridescent pieces but you did a great job with it. I love how you decided on a multi strand design too…really gets lots of beady goodness in one design 🙂

    Even though you only did one piece – that piece is AWESOME! (plus you have a new baby, so I’m sure very little time)

    You captured all the colors in the pendant and set them off, but the mutlistrands don’t overpower the it. Great great job. I would so wear this!!

    I love how you used three strands with that gorgeous focal, it has wonderful hues which the beads compliment perfectly.
